youre trainers say a lot about you as a person,
so are you a baketball, xtrainer, runner etc?
are you a brand person or none brand?
if you do brands, what one?

I was told to throw my beloved Pinkish trainers ( from the Avon ) in the dustbin by my physio therapist as the sole was far too squashy and made my feet turn inwards . I am left with my gym trainers , make unknown and no logo on them , but considered o.k by therapist .

I also bought a pair of bright rose velvet trainers with silk laces with glittery rhinestone stars and Christmassy sequins .
make: Betsey Johnson . For indoor party wear only to go with the purple and red of the Red Hatters! .
What does that tell about me apart that Leogirl may be a bit " different" in her later years.

For badminton I have a pair of Reebok court shoes and only change into these upon arrival at the court.

For walking I have a pair of Nike that I thought were expensive around £120 however 30+ months on still going strong & should get another winters wear out of them, so on reflection they've been worth the money.

I have two pairs of work boots & one pair of formal shoes & a pair of casual shoes & that is my footwear collection in its entirety

Are court shoes the ones with a thicker heel but not as high as traditional “high heel” shoes?

"For walking I have a pair of Nike that I thought were expensive around £120 however 30+ months on still going strong & should get another winters wear out of them, so on reflection they've been worth the money."

Not sure I could ever pay that amount for a pair of trainers. The pair I use now for general purpose footwear, are now 3+ years old and cost me less than £30 if i remember rightly.

I never thought I'd shell out huge amounts on trainers or shoes, until I tried MBTs... the curved soles significantly reduce the discomfort caused by lower back and sciatic nerve problems for me. I consider the money well spent if it means I don't have to rely on painkillers and chiropractic treatment to keep me moving !

I have a pair of blue suede trainers to wear with jeans (I don’t wear them very often), and a pair of Skechers Lite Walk - but I find them too squishy soled, so I only wear them to Pilates then take them off when I get there.

For walking I have Salomon walking shoes - they were quite expensive to buy but are so comfortable and last for ages, been buying the same model for years - I walk about 50 miles a week with my hound. They are my favourites :-)

I love trainers...

I've always been a Nike man, especially Nike Shox. I've had countless different designs over they years, my most favourite one were a pair I got from NikeiD, where I had my own customised, personalised pair of shox made. That was about 9 years ago, they were around £300 at the time, I still have them... the dog chewed them when he was a puppy, they are in my gym locker, only used for the gym. The Shox aren't the best trainers for purpose, but the look amazing.

At Xmas I'll be waiting for a sale somewhere and I'll buy two more pairs of shox type trainer, one for the gym and one for out and about.

I also have two pairs of Adidas trainers, bought for me by a lovely friend and another by my brother.
